Quinn’s Pub & Grill

Choose from a number of different sandwiches and hamburgers and some classic appetizers. Top it off with a beer and you’ve got yourself a St. Patrick’s Day celebration!
Gallagher’s Pub & Grill
Situated on Broadway, this eatery is known for its hustle and bustle including live music and karaoke!

You can’t go wrong with celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at The Auld Dubliner! They open their doors at 11 am on Thursday, March 17th, and have a full schedule of events planned for the day including Irish dancing and live music. They offer traditional Irish plates along with classic bar bites!
